A “cat town” was founded by locals in the Black Sea province of Samsun, in Turkey to provide a healthy and comfortable living space for stray cats.
The facility was founded in a 10,000-kilometer forest area within the municipal animal shelter. Street cats are collected and spayed before they are brought to “cat town”. The facility also takes care of cats that are sick and need treatments. The cats can stay in Bungalow houses, either individually or in groups.
“The facility is like a five-star hotel for cats. Everything that is required for their health and life is provided here,” said Hüseyin Aydın who is a vet and manager of the animal shelter.
More than 200 street cats now reside in this place and they want to expand the area so that 1,000 cats can live there comfortably.
